Get The Look: Sara Bareilles’ 2014 Grammy Awards Textured Braids

Get The Look Sara Bareilles’ 2014 Grammy Awards Textured Braids

Sara Bareilles, known for her beautiful voice and lyrical impact, donned no-fuss, textured tresses at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

Celebrity hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp described the look as “rough, beautiful hair that pulled her face up and back.”

Beauchamp prepped the hair first, using Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray on Sara’s damp hair. In order to create the texture, he rough-dried the strands. When the hair was dry, he made two loose cornrow braids from the front to the back of her head.

He used a 1 1/4 inch curling iron on the rest of the hair; wrapping around just the ends. Using a bit of Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Move It Manipulating Gel, he worked it into Sara’s hair, section by section. This created more of a “slightly slept-in” look.

To set the hair, he gave it a few spritzes of Garnier Fructis Style Extreme Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray.

The result? Effortless waves and braids to compliment her feminine Blumarine gown.

    Sorry, but that doesn’t look effortless to me. It looks likes someone went to a lot of trouble to make her hair look a mess.

    This looks even worse than I assumed. If I ever get stranded on an island and have a lot of time on my hands, I’ll be sure to try this out.

      I feel the same way, I didn’t like it before but after seeing it up close I may hate it more. I can see how this could have been an attempt at a beach wedding type hairstyle, but it’s so… over processed, all the carefree-ness of having messy waves and braids are lost. And the island reference is spot on – it actually looks like you could mimic the effect best with salt water, dirty hair and maybe sunblock.

    It looks like my attempt at plaiting my daughters’ hair in a rush to get them to school!

    The entire look was a miss for her – from the gown itself to the hairstyle and accessories – she’s a bit too mature for all that, could’ve worked for someone like Bella Thorne though.
